Jenkins is great. We know it well enough, though, to realize that it’s also not a silver bullet. As we look to move from build and CI to DevOps and continuous delivery (CD), there are many other tools in our toolkit that we will need to integrate in order to have effective, flexible automation that supports our teams and initiatives.
We will classify and discuss various categories of CD and DevOps tools, highlighting which tools are best used for which tasks. We’ll present an outline of an effective CD toolkit based on allowing best-of-breed tools to do what they do best without overstretching and breaking them. By swapping our hammer for a proper toolkit, not every problem in application delivery need look like a nail!
